10 Best Nylon Wallets for Men

For people who prefer small, flat, ultra-slim, and extremely lightweight yet sturdy wallet designs, a nylon wallet is the way to go. While leather has a classy look to it, they’re normally thick and when you have everything in, it might come off as bulky. Nylon, on the other hand, is ultra-thin, so you don’t have to leave any of your valuables at home or give up any functionality. It’s great for vegetarians and vegans too.

Nowadays, there are so many types of wallets made from different materials available on the market so finding a good nylon men’s wallet is so hard anymore. Especially with the help of the Internet, you can find pretty much everything online. In today’s collection, we’ll introduce to you 10 best nylon wallets for people who love this type of skinny wallets.

It has a classic look with the bifold design and comes in the colour black. With the measurements of5.1 x 3.8 x 1 inches, the wallet features a full length zippered pocket and multiple pockets. It’s designed with a secure Velcro closure, the same design made by the company since the day the original Velcro wallet invented.

The wallet is durable thanks to the high quality material and strong stitching. Being resilient to water (note that it’s not waterproof) is an advantage, the nylon dries quickly when it’s damp or even soaked without changing the appearance and functionality. The Velcro seal is reliable, sturdy and convenient allowing you to have access to your coins or bills more easily and quickly. The wallet would have been perfect if the credit card slots weren’t a bit wide allowing your credit cards to slip out easily. The solution to it would be inserting multiple cards in one slot to make it tighter.

It’s good to be used daily with plenty of room for your folded dollar bills, cards, and coins… Being made of tear and abrasion resistant material which is very tough and the seams are strong allowing the wallet to hold up well for a long period of time. However, the ID and card compartments are a little big allowing the contents to slide out easily. To keep things from falling out, you’re supposed to put more in the wallet. Besides, you have to fold the bills before putting them in so the wallet can become quite thick. These pet peeves defeat the point of a minimalist wallet as it should be.

About the Author

  1. I am looking for a THIN wallet, which I think would mean nylon rather than leather. ( I bought a beautiful leather wallet in Sweden with all the places you could ever want to carry everything. It was expensive and beautiful and perfect in every way – EXCEPT it has about 15 layers of Leather! And when I filled it I can barely get it into my pocket as it is Two Inches Thick!)
    Size is not a problem, my Swedish wallet is about 3 3/4 by 4 empty. It is the thickness that is the problem.
    I need it to hold credit cards 12 is OK doubled up, plus places for drivers license, photos, business cards, money – bills. My Swedish wallet is trifold.
    Do your wallet sizes measure them open or closed? Thank you.
